obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> i think that's a strong ad for mitt romney. the question is why he wasn't playing that two or three months ago. >> it is a good ad and you're right. there's a larger dynamic in ohio that actually is true nationally, too, which is you have some economic improvement, you have -- there's a sort of consumer confidence number that came out, highest since february, the housing market that's starting to actually show real upticks nationally and the distressed markets, so it's going to be hard for mitt romney to go around selling the voice of gloom. that's something people don't want to hear. they're changing tactics. the compassion idea, something else, compassion and mitt romney , not a natural fit but they have to try something new. i think, i would be interested to see if they come out with a ha

or justice antonin scalia who are both in their mid-70s, if they retired, then president obama could replace a conservative or a right leaning moderate. >> reporter: here's who could make the nominee list if president obama wins a second term. california attorney general harris is getting a lot of buzz. >> the california attorney general has political experience, which is really missing on the court right now. >> reporter: another name circulating is ja kwlen wen. if she's nominated, the california-based federal appeals judge would make history as the court's first asian-american justice. but that's no guarantee. and for example if ruth bader ginsburg is the only justice to retire, the liberal side of the court would not get any bigger. just a little younger. >> and as you know, there's been a lot of speculation about whom romney might nominate. >> right. among them paul clement is one name we've heard. dia diane sikes and kav gnaw, a judge here in d.c. >> love to speculate. >> fantastic. >> all the names we've never heard of. >> happens a lot. i know. >>> we'll have a quick check of some of

recently both nationally and in swing states, you know this poll looks like a lot of others. obama has advantages over romney on the economy and a range of issues. one thing that stood out in the poll is that a lot of voters didn't like how obama's handling the situation in libya. and the romney campaign sort of sees that as well which is why you see them hitting obama so hard on this lately. but there is still a problem here for romney. this is why the debates are so important. romney wants to change the fundamental structure of this race with this debate coming up next wednesday. remember, over 50 million people watched the first presidential debate in 2008. this is going to be a big moment coming up next week, fred, for mitt romney. >> well, let's shift to the u.s. senate and how pivotal any race could be. the democrats have a six-seat majority, but they're defending 23 seats in the election, with republicans defending just 10. so what would give the republicans a pretty good shot at seizing a 51-seat majority, but they also have a big problem and that is that race in missouri. >> y

you played with mitt romney in colorado, president obama on sunday night in las vegas, both basically what they both said is the media wants this to be a back and forth brawl, we're going to be serious and focus on the issues because they understand that when it comes to undecided voters, tend to be people, not always, politically independent. those kind of people don't like the nastiness, the back and forth. partisans love that. but independents don't like it. the messaging is i'm a serious person, these are serious times, and we need someone who has the ability, capacity, demonstrated record to lead. so i actually think both of them will be kind of the serious and sober politician as opposed to you showed the clip of scott brown and elizabeth warren, i don't think that's what's going to happen tomorrow night. >> mark, we've seen a lot of evidence so far and see more when we go through the numbers tonight in the nbc news "wall street journal" poll the final numbers when they come out how important do you think the 47% comment is? because we've seen a real shift with mitt romney tryin

do you bring to the table? >> guest: well, how about truth for starters. the notion that both obama and romney are arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash medicare spending because if we don't, um, i believe that we're going to find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapse as a result of continuing to borrow and spend money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar that we spend. >> host: so what are you seeing out there on that particular issue? what's your prescription, pardon the expression. >> guest: well, i oversaw the reform of medicaid in new mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we took it from a fee-for-service model to a managed care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, we set up better health care networks for the poor in new mexico. i believe if the federal government would have block granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, done away with all the strings and the mandates that i could have effectively overseen the delivery of health care to t

. >> well, basically, you know, we're just disappointed that governor romney and president obama haven't addressed gun violence in a concrete, specific way. and so basically we're demanding a plan from both of them. in advance of a presidential election, and presidential debate in denver, and asking that they put forth something specific, aside from just platitudes and moments of silence, and actually get down to the business of preventing that violence. >> how likely do you think it is, i mean ron has covered more -- more presidential debates than the rest of us. >> you know, this issue i think has been shelved by a myth. and the myth is since al gore lost in 2000 that gun control is overwhelmingly been rejected by the country. in fact the country is very closely divided. almost exactly in half. support has diminished since bill clinton was in august and was making the case for it. you contrast columbine when there was enormous white house focus and national conversation after those shootings to what happened here where there is the silence. democrats in particular have been intimidat

pretty much into the weeds on both sides. they wanted to know what exactly was going to happen, how it was going to affect them and how either person was going to turn the country around. the obama supporters say give the president more time, he hasn't had enough time to turn it around, the romney supporters say, listen it's just a failed operation and this is a businessman who can turn the country around. i think it's really a swing state, and this is a swing county inside a swing state. it's going to be fascinating over the next 48 hours. jenna: it makes it all the more interesting to watch your reporting tonight. thank you very much, bret baier will be part of our coverage at the debate. you can catch it right here on your election headquarters on wednesday night starting at 8:55 eastern time, certainly a debate not to be missed at all. gregg: it's going to be a good one upwards of 50 million expected to be stafpg. jenna: larry sabato says more people say they watch the debates than actually do. gregg: they are kind of ashamed they didn't really watch? there is no football that n

research center has some bad news for both parties. just over half of likely voters are satisfied with the presidential choices this year compared with 72% of voters who were satisfied in 2008. meanwhile, despite some awkward campaign gaffes by president obama, the mainstream news media appear to be glossing over statements that might normally be considered fumbles. new york post saying today that thanks to the liberal media, the president doesn't need teflon. quote: you'd think the lockstep media would enjoy having a couple of new gaffes to feed on, but that would presume they have a role other than the one they've implicitly assigned to themselves which is to get obama reelected. let's talk about it with bill kristol, the editor of "the weekly standard" and a fox news contributor. one of the so-called gaffes that wasn't that he was pointing to there was when the president came out and said we've had bumps in the road to "60 minutes," referring to the deaths of our ambassador and the three other americans in libya. what do you think of the way the media has treated it, bill? >> w
